Let's Go to the Carnival

Well today is HHH from Unity.  I used the Unity Exclusive Store Kit, now I don't have a store that carries Unity so I went to PaperManic.
I had this paper from a old ClubScrap kit.  I thought it was perfect and I had to use it.

PaperManic has great customer service.

3-D Challenge - Ladies, Ink

The challenge for my fellow bloggers on Ladies Ink was to do a 3-d challenge.  Completely out of my comfort zone, because my projects never turn out the way I thought.   I found this on SCS - Cammie’s Triangle Treat Box.

Bevy of Butterflies - HHH

Yesterday was Unity Hip Hop and today is Hip Hop Hangover. :) I was inspired to create a card from bevy of butterflies from Unity Stamp Co and the mojo monday. I love the different butterflies on this set. So many possibilities.

Let the Sunshine

I joined the Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends ning.  They had an atc swap from let the sunshine.   It really didn't turn out the way I thought it would.

Gina K Sketch Challenge - stvsc20

I was on the stamptv community and this is the sketch right now.
I was trying to think out of the box and use colors that I would not use with the image. I would not think about using this pattern paper normally.

I finally got the StampTv Kit called Electric Summer Kit from GinaK.

I also did some paper piecing with the hot air balloon. I think I like paper piecing but you do have to get a pair of sharp scissors.
